Congratulations on the new 30 pound baby. 

I just had a nice long look at your last year's baking and it is all beautiful! Too bad I am not near enough to drop in.  How nice to have a hubby who bakes ...and bakes and bakes...:))  Seeing all your beautiful goodies reminds me of the little daughter of a cousin. Back in the 1950s, the dad ran a restaurant and the mother was a nurse. While the mother was off work on maternity leave, the child said, "Now that Mama stays home, she's learning to bake *almost* as well as Daddy."

Do you have any idea how the ProLine compares with the Epicurean model?  I don't know how long the Epicurean was made, but it holds 6 quarts and is 475 watts. That's what I have and I hope I got a strong enough one. I think the Pro line might be a higher wattage.

Loved your comment about the new mouth feeding you, instead of vice versa!

That's a gorgeous mixer, Norm.  Are the gears metal?  Hmmm....I've been mixing bagels with my faithful KA Artisan, but only in segments of three minutes of mixing time so I can let the motor cool down.
